Last month we introduced you to the three women making up our Big Marathon Challenge team in 2018! Now their training is well under way, we catch up with them to see how they are getting on

Running a marathon takes perseverance and a whole heap of motivation. It’s an exciting journey, but even the most dedicated marathoner knows it’s tough to get to the start line.

Here at Women’s Running, we’ve decided to make the marathon journey that little bit easier for three women, with our Big Marathon Challenge!

The New Year has well and truly begun, which means the women are getting to grips with their personalised training plans. We caught up with them to find out how they’re getting on…
